photostory friday: i smile happy tears every time i look at these pictures

remember when miss 14 and i flew to australia  couple of weeks to surprise my bestie tara and miss 14's bestie?
 we went to the beach
 we got dressed up and went out
 i soaked up some rays
 took pictures at sunset
 went for walks
 hung out
 we even scrapped
 then had to say goodbye.  again.


this is tara's surprise captured on film

(do we even say that these days - 'film'?)
i don't know
just wondered.....

she was outside, playing with her nieces in the sun

first confusion (this person can't be standing in front of me
- she lives in ANOTHER COUNTRY!!!
then shock
then glee
   more glee
 then hugs and happy tears

What a great thing to do, although I would not have been happy unless my house was clean! ;) Glad you all had fun!

The picture of Tara sitting in her yard with her mouth wide open is just priceless! That is awesome! Feel free to surprise me anytime, even though we don't know each other that well....I'd still love to meet you. I have a feeling you are a "kindred spirit.":) Love the beach pic too.
